Queen Ant's Hatchery is an underground cave system in Fallout 3, but is still considered part of the Capital Wastelands metro's. It can accessed from the Marigold Metro Station in Grayditch.

The hatchery tunnels are small and damp with debris scattered everywhere, even being fully caved in at parts. When the player first walks in there will be a large cavern that can be navigated through, then a tunnel to a small area north of it. Finally, the small area has a tunnel (also north) that goes directly to the hatchery (marked with a Q).

Be warned, the location is crawling with a mutated form of Giant Ant, Fire Ants, and their variants. There are five Fire Ant Nest Protectors, the strongest type of fire ant, in the tunnel a long with the giant Fire Ant Queen.


[edit] Those!

Main Article: Those!

In the quest Those! you trace the origins of the Fire Ants to Doctor Lesko. He explains that he was trying to shrink the Giant Ants, and by accident he created them. You have the choice of helping Doctor Lesko reverse the effects or killing the Fire Ant Queen. Helping Lesko will get you the Ant Might or Ant Sight perk, killing the queen ant originally does not get you the reward, but you can pass a speech check and still get it.
